"Familiar figures and concepts depicted in a simple graphic style invite very young children to catalog and identify many of the items they might encounter in their everyday worlds." - Kirkus Reviews
"A visual encyclopedia of things to spot and say with a difference, the pictures are strong, bold and dominate the page, the labels are clear and defined but it is not just about the learning, it comes with a game too, a little mouse to spot on every page! Compulsive and instructional fun, minimal and modern." - Armadillo
"To bill this book as a 'vocabulary builder' is to woefully underplay its hand. Study hard and this book will see you safely through nursery and in to reception as an assured four year old who can hold their own in the cut and thrust of classroom debate... the book is huggable, sniffable and strokable. The bright, digitally created images are easy on the eye, with kid and parent appeal and an air of comforting naivity. The clear font is helpful for early readers." - The Bookbag
"This book does have a lot to offer: the illustrations are eye-catching, and youngsters will enjoy searching for the mouse hidden on every page." - School Library Journal
"Help babies learn their first words with this visual encyclopedia. It's educational and adorable." - Glitter Guide
